I think it may just be because its a new environment and she isn’t used to it. You could try and make her cage look as similar as possible to her old one, though that can be tough. When my bun had a cone on and couldn’t access water very often, I gave him almost a constant supply of fresh, wet produce, mostly romaine lettuce. That may help until she starts drinking again, my rabbits just wouldn’t drink out of a bottle.
For hay, if you haven’t tried already, you could give her some toys made out of hay to get her eating it until she starts eating it normally.
She should stay hydrated if she has enough veggies, at least until she starts drinking out of the bottle.
Best of luck with your bun!
